Anderson 2 – Round 9: ‘Every You, Every Me, Pt. 3′

Filed under: Anderson — Tags: , , , , , , , — Mao @ 12:00 am

Florence Anderson is happily oblivious to the confusion her significant other of many years, Shaniqua Saunders, is experiencing. Of the twin aliens, Lilith finds herself having issue coping with both the death of her boyfriend and witnessing the entire sordid thing. Nathaniel is a little more easy-going, though admittedly, is worried about his sibling. Kate is about the only normal one in the family.

 

Florence and Shaniqua talk to Lilith

After the incident that occurred at the Saunders house resulting in the death of Chuck Saunders, Florence and Shaniqua sat Lilith down. She had spent a week at an institution an hour away in the city in hopes of helping her deal with the situation. It didn’t seem to work very well. When she returned, she didn’t say a word to anyone.

Florence and Shaniqua tried to be reassuring, but it was of no use. Lilith just looked at them. Every now and again, she’d nod. Eventually they gave up and let her go off to her room.

Sara hangs out with Nathaniel

Even Sara found that talking to Lilith was useless. She never talked back and she just looked annoyed. It was quite difficult for Sara, as Lilith was her best friend… her only real friend, actually. One day, as she left Lilith’s room defeated, Nathaniel stopped her. Apparently Lilith had been doing this to everyone and he told her not to take it too badly. It wasn’t personal, Lilith was just dealing.

He asked Sara to help him practice (Lilith usually did), and of course, she agreed.

Nathaniel and Sara talk

It became a daily thing after that, Sara coming over and helping Nathaniel out. She had gotten better and was actually able to block a few of his kicks and make him work for goals. Lilith still refused to talk, so Sara found she spent a lot of time with Nathaniel. While she didn’t fool herself into thinking he saw her as anything but ‘one of the guys’, she still enjoyed being around him.

He was nice to her, too. Well, more so than usual. Likely because she was helping him out. Nathaniel was never mean, no. But he paid more attention to Sara. It made it more difficult to deal with the fact that Nathaniel and Lilith would be going to University without her.

Lilith ponders

Meanwhile, Lilith spent a lot of time in quiet contemplation. What she had seen had really jarred her. How many people could say they stood face-to-face with death? No one, probably. It made Lilith think about things she’d never thought about before–life, death, the paranormal. What other things were out there, waiting to be discovered?

She also thought about Damien and what it might be like to lose your twin. While Nathaniel annoyed her, she couldn’t imagine being without him. He was her twin, they were two halves to the same whole. She felt bad for ignoring everyone, especially him and Sara, but she just needed time to think and ponder and question.

Lilith seeks the stars

When she was sure everyone was asleep, she would sneak outside and gaze up at the stars. She often wondered where she came from. She was an alien, after all, and not completely of this world. What was her true purpose? Maybe she saw things others didn’t because she was an alien. She wished Nathaniel took his differences a bit more seriously, so they could talk about it, but he didn’t. He preferred to be normal and blend in and not question.

Shaniqua is fulfilled

Shaniqua came home one day feeling completely fulfilled. She had completed her life’s goal and she couldn’t have felt better. It was almost as if she was walking on air. In fact, she felt so amazing that she dared to do what she had been thinking about for days.

  1. That poor Florence, and Lilith too! Their lives just suck, don’t they? Florence is so oblivious to everything and Lilith has to filter the fact her…surrogate mom-dad-thing is cheating on her mom WHILE dealing with her boyfriend’s death. That poor girl D:

    Mao edit: At the moment, pretty much. Lilith really isn’t getting much luck, though.

  2. Well, I must say that I am disappointed in Shaniqua. However, she is a romance sim…and I definitely know how that goes! Oh well, hopefully she can keep it a secret until Kate is grown up and out of the house!

    Mao edit: Yep, romance sims will be romance sims!

  3. Poor Florence and Lilith. Also Nathaniel seems to like Sara more, more. Bad Shaniqua, she should know from all the other affairs that has happened in this neighborhood that it won’t go unnoticed!

    Mao edit: Nathaniel and Sara do have two bolts, so we’ll see. So far, Nathaniel hasn’t spun up any wants.

  4. Ugh! I officially have ultimate disdain for Shaniqua. Here’s hoping that Florence gets wise and slaps her… Or worse… She IS an Anderson, after all. ;)

    Mao edit: Bahaha, that’s a good point! Shaniqua better watch out.

  6. Bad Shaniqua, but then again she is a Romance sim and Florence didn’t have time for her… It was bound to happen. I feel sorry for Lilith though.

    Mao edit: Very, very true. Nothing good can come of this!

  7. A romance sim will not be denied :) At least little Kate is oblivious to the goings on and Florence is no dummy though, she’ll figure it out soon enough I hope.

    Poor Lilith is really going through a change, from the cocky little kid to the pensive, angst filled teen.

    Mao edit: Indeed, you can’t tame a romance sim! ;) Lilith is having a really rough time.

  8. Hi, I just found out about this website. I really like it! I feel bad for Lilith, she’s one of my favorites. I knew Shaniqua would do this though. After all, she is a romance sim. That’s why the annoy me so much. Although, they make the neighborhood interesting.

    Mao edit: Hi there and welcome. :D Romance sims are a mixed bag, but you’re right, they do liven things up!
